Your Body Will Not Cool Down.

Do you know you are at the risk of heat stroke or heat exhaustion if you don't sweat? People who can't sweat due to the side effects of medications or due to some disorder are at the risk of an increased high body temperature.

Sweat is a mechanism through which your body cools down. It is a way through which your body stabilises its inner temperature.


You Will Fall Victim To A Host Of Opportunistic Diseases

Very few people actually know that by sweating we are actually boosting our body's immunity level. Sweating helps to flush out the harmful pathogens from our body, saving us from several diseases.


You Are At A Greater Risk Of Developing A Skin Infection

When you sweat, pores open which helps in releasing toxins and pollutants that cause skin infections such as pimples and acne. People who develop viral skin infections or have bacterial skin infections often lack dermcidin in their sweat, which is the main cause behind it.


Greater Risk Of Developing Kidney Stones

Sweating is an effective way to flush out extra salt from the body. People who don't sweat have a high amount of salt and calcium deposits in their body, causing a kidney stone to be formed. When you sweat, you drink water that balances out the salt in the body.


Can Make You Feel Gloomy

Activities such as gymming or even a yoga session release endorphin hormones that make you feel good. When you sweat during these physical activities, it releases endorphin hormones that can put a smile on your face.


You May Need More Pain Relievers

Did you know a simple act such as walking around the block or a dance session releases hormones during sweating that act as a natural pain reliever? So, include fitness activities that cause you to sweat and make you reach out for painkillers a little less.

You Will Be More Prone To The Side Effects Caused By Harmful Pollutants

Plastics have become important parts of our lives, but DEHP and BPA found in plastic could be very harmful to our health. Sweating is a way through which our body gets rid of these harmful chemicals from our system. If you don't sweat, these harmful chemicals remain in our body causing us much harm.


Wounds Will Take Longer To Heal
